The starting of May has been full of tragidy. We have lost two gems of Indian cinema, Irrfan Khan who died of colon infection and Rishi Kapoor who lost his life battling cancer. We can only imagine the pain their family must be going through. Even during this time of grief, trolls are not stopping from targeting and grief-shaming celebrities. Kareena Kapoor Khan was their recent target.
Even though she stood with her family and was their at his last rites, trolls found a way to shame her. Recently, Kareena Kapoor Khan shared an adorable picture in which Saif can be seen giving Tim Tim a haircut. She captioned the photo with “Haircut anyone?”. Fans showered the post with love. But, apparently some people found it to be insensitive that the actress shared it only after a couple of days of her uncle Rishi Kapoor’s demise.
Many trolls accused her of being disrespectful to the death of the veteran actor. Some of them wrote, “Your family had such a big loss just a few days ago. How can u joke even?” or “aren’t u supposed to be mourning? Should’ve respected that by not posting anything on ur ig as if nothing happened.”
The comments ranged from questioning Kareena on why isn’t she mourning the death of her uncle to accusing her of being attention seeker.
Even though the actress was one of the first ones to post for the veteran actor and paid her respect. The trolls are mercilessly trolling her and labeling her with mean comments.
Here are some of attacks that Kareena was subjected to on social media.
What’s the worst part about this incident is celebrities are getting trolled for griefing the way they want, and not how netizens want. There’s nothing wrong in what she posted. She just shared the picture of the two people who mean the world to her: her husband and her son. How can anyone find something wrong in a post that celebrates family and love?
Dear trolls, instead of demeaning celebrities and spreading negativity, choose empathy.
